Abstract:

Degree of aggregation and age classes in forests of Kotli
hills were recorded in relation to environmental variable
and underlying anthropogenic influence. Aggregated species
(36.27%) were dominant in the area followed by the
intermediate species with share of 36.27 and 33.16
respectively. Similarly regeneration capacity of the forest
shows that Pinus roxburghii and Punica granatum were the
only regenerating species in the investigated area. The
remaining eight species viz: Olea ferruginea, Quercus
dilatata, Flacourtia indica Celtis eriocarpa, Grewia villosa,
Acacia modesta, Ficus palmata and Mallotus philipensis were
not regenerating due to deforestation and overgrazing. These
species are in endangered condition.
